Admin tools: Event Trigger
Event Trigger 2018102100
Code prechecksHTML | XML
The Event Trigger allows Moodle Events to be monitored and a workflow to be triggered when that event occurs.
One of the main use cases of this plugin is to allow Moodle events to trigger actions in external systems.
Each workflow is made up of a series of steps. Steps can be things like: * Using event data to lookup user and course information * Filtering data based on a set of conditions * Performing an action like sending an email or Posting data to a HTTP endpoint or external API.
The plugin is designed to be extensible and contributions are welcome to extend the available actions.
